Beyond the classroom and the clinic, our students have robust opportunities to explore other interests and balance other aspects of their lives whether raising a family, honing musical or artistic talents, competing in sports or leading community service initiatives.

The College sponsors many activities for students that range from formal ceremonies and award programs to social events, community service events and special activities. There is an athletic facility on campus as well as intramural leagues for those interested in sports.

Our location in the heart of Houston, the nation’s fourth-largest city, provides many opportunities to pursue outside interests as well. Hermann Park, which is right next door to the Texas Medical Center, offers trails, a public golf course, the Houston Zoo and an outdoor amphitheater. To the west are Rice University and the Rice Village Shopping Center. Directly north is the Museum District’s 18 art organizations, and just five miles further north is downtown, the hub of Houston’s restaurants, clubs, theaters, and sports stadiums.

She shared about her experience on Baylor's Momentum blog.
